Drive around town, wave and smile, drive it in a local Parade ! Thank a veteran. Give an older veteran the offer of a ride in your car.
Depends on whether the rain ever lets up.
Yup we are forecasting thunderstorms Monday for our Memorial Day Parade
Rain? What rain? We haven't had any rain (to speak of) for two weeks here! And with all the rocks underneath us (barely 6" of top soil), we're browning out real quick. Send us some Steve! And to California, they need it worse!
Folks seem to confuse Memorial Day with Veteran's Day. Memorial day was originally May 30 and called "Decoration Day" - a day to decorate the graves of fallen soldiers (originally from the Civil War, or War of Northern Aggression, depending on where you live. It is a day set aside honor those who have given their full measure of devotion to this country.
Veteran's day is the day we honor the Living Veterans amongst us. Not that any day is a good day to honor and thank them.
